    What I'm trying to achieve here is to have a sort of Cloud OS or somehow to have a Server Receive inputs and send end result video back in real time. The speeds I'm talking about here should be around 1ms. An example of this service is Onlive. They take inputs from users many miles away, process them on their powerful Graphics intensive game servers and then send the video back, all in a short period of time and with minimal latency issues. That is what I'm trying to achieve in short but instead of games, I want to be using Professional software Such as Adobe Aftereffects or 3DSMAX.

    Keep in mind that, I will only be using such a server at home, never outside my network, (because of regular consumer upload speeds) so the only bottleneck here might be wireless and Router QoS.

    Some solutions I have tried is VMware ESXI, I guess that software sounds a bit crazy as I'm assuming their intentions for creating such software is for such things that are more enterprise oriented. IE: File Servers, Web Servers, etc.
    At a consumer level, I've also tried VMworkstation, They have a function that supports remote Streaming and client inputs in the way that I originally described. Problem is, they don't support Direct X or any sound.
    Again, I guess their intention for such a function isn't for what I'm intending to do. ( It never hurts to try right? )

    So in conclusion, is there any way to stream such a OS like Win 7 or Linux Via home network while still being able to use such professional programs? (and no not Windows Desktop, Because they can't support Multiple platforms and cannot support direct X and sound as well.) Also, I'm not paying for 200-800$ a month for a cloud server with multiple Xenon Cores and 200GB RAM.
